Facts for Renters
There isn't an extensive history of Orange Township, because many of the settlers arrived and immediately got to work to make a comfortable life for themselves. The township was initially called Township 3, Range 18 of the United States Military Lands. The township was supposed to be named Virgil, but the townspeople didn't like it so it was changed to the simpler name of Orange.
The first settler to the township was Joab Norton in 1807. Norton came to the area because of his wife, who wanted to be closer to her father who lived in the nearby community of Worthington.
Within a year of Norton arriving, several other families came to the area and a community was quickly created.
Today, the community still holds many of its earliest historic structures such as the Gooding House.
